A third case of a bottle of sulfuric acid

being dropped from heights took place in

Mongkok's pedestrian zone last week

Over 100 injuries were caused so far

The serious nature of the offence

has prompted the police to offer a reward of

$900K for anyone with any information

on such cases

Please dial direct... 27711777

May I help you, miss?

Three cups of lychee juice with honey

More lychee, less bees


I mean less honey

Also get me a...

yogurt, chocalate and apple

Mango, blueberries and water melon sorbet

All's mine. Thank you



Where are you?

On a case

Can you spare a sec?

Can you talk?

I'm on a case



Do you copy?


Yes. Mission accomplished

I've got everything, on my way

Wait a sec

Saw the blind man behind you?


At your 7 o'clock

The one in a dark blue suit

Yes, got him... what's up?

Follow him

Follow him?

Officer Szeto

The sorbet will melt

You have to drink it cold...

Follow him

Find out what he's messing with

Got that

I'm off duty, hon

I'll go buy some dishes for dinner

Are you coming back for dinner?

You haven't come back for two days

Return my call


Officer Szeto

The blind man is following someone


A fat guy in a white-striped shirt...


You think I knew nothing
between you and the driver?

You fucked him in a truck

You seduced him?

Go to hell!

Don't ever come back. We're finished

What is he looking at?

Check it out!

Hon, forgive me

You may fuck him in the truck

Remember to roll down the window

It's dangerous to inhale the fumes

Hon, I'll wait for you

Do come home. Bye

Want a plastic bag?


The fat guy is the suspect

Don't lose him

We'll be right there

Action for everyone

Call for backup

Yes, sir

Excuse me


Is this orange juice, gorgeous?

It's sulfuric acid

Thank you, gorgeous

The blind man has followed
the fat guy into Wing Mansion

I'll keep track

Team A, disperse the crowd

Team B, shut down all exits

Team C, follow me

Evacuate! Danger!

Organised Crime Triad Bureau

I have very reliable sources

My name's Johnston

ID Card no. G1962...62...


I'm Szeto Fatbo, Chief Inspector of OCTB

It hurts

Watch out for my face

Look counts most for cute guys like me

Got that

A lady cop?

You're under arrest

You have the right to remain silent

Anything you'll say

may be used as statement in court

Good martial arts... better than Susan

Szeto Fatbo

"Officer Szeto, what accounts for

the unexpected outcome of the case?"

Our team joined CIB to set up

Surveillance in the pedestrian zone

On this evening

we spotted a suspect

I promptly sent a teamate to follow him.

He succeeded to find him

As soon as he went to the roof

I took action

Dispersing the crows on one hand

and enclosing him on the other

We finally arrested him

Was there any resistance

during the arrest?


So you're Johnston the super detective?

My name's Ho


Are you alright?

Do you realise how dangerous it was?

Lucky we arrived in time

Tell me, who was the suspect?

Pick up the shoe for me

Who was the suspect?

I was the suspect

You followed me

and found that fat guy

I cracked the case, right?

Yes... No

I cracked it

Because I'm smart

I'm smart in knowing you're smart

Cut that crap

How about the reward?

You called the Bureau at 7:40 p.m

But I issued my order at 7:30 p.m

We took action before you reported the case

Also, you didn't give any details on the phone

except your name

You fucked up everything

- Don't do that
- It hurts


My juniors are all looking

I spent 9 full months in Mongkok

It all came down to nothing

You'll get a good citizen award

Award your ass!

You're being paid $80K a month

A disabled person like me

makes a living on reward monies

This way


I'll treat you to dinner

I promise it'll be a good meal

Let's go

It has to worth at least $100K


I'm earning only $80K per month

I have to feed my family

I don't care

I'll eat $100K worth of it

OK, my treat

Call that a celebration




How are you, John?

I'm Ho

Thank you

- Put it here
- Sure

Do you drive? Your glass, here

Very few female cops are as good as you

Good physique?


I stationed at the airport

You run fast?

2.4km in 9' 17"

How about shooting and combat?

I'm good.

I practiced Close Quarters Battle

Why did you put down your silverware?

I'm actually a bit scared of you

I'm no good at all in investigation

I lacked a detective's mind

I'm envious of my colleagues

They'd just think for a minute

and crack a case instantly

You're absolutely brilliant

And yet you're blind

I admire you so much

No doubt you're my idol

I secretly called you

The God of detectives

Very agile

One more bottle

Do you live here?

Nice environment

It's quiet

Over there

First floor across the street

Are you OK?

Sure. I'm sober

Tell me

Minnie is my junior

3 years younger, she was in Grade 7

She was living in a foster family

She's a bit weird

Low self-esteem, unsociable, friendless

The boys always bullied her

I'd always defend her

Maybe that's why we became good friends

She used to follow me home

after school

We played and did everything together

Get to the point

One day

She told me in tears

that she was afraid she'd be like

her grandma and mom who killed for love

Turned out her father
had an affair shortly after her birth

Her mother was so angry

that she murdered him

And preserved his body in salt

She was raised by her grandma

When she was in elementary school, her grandma

became some guy's mistress

The guy was a creep

He refused to divorce his wife

and dumped grandma

Infuriated, grandma

murdered the guy

She even deep-fried his body

You were shocked by the story

and distanced yourself from Minnie?

It's only natural

I avoided her

But she came and waited for me

Right where you're standing

She waited for the whole night

I was absolutely horrified

I hid myself behind the window

On thinking back

she must have been heart-broken

But I was really scared

I dared not come down

I never did

After standing there for 5 nights

on June 20

she disappeared

She's just a little girl

Where could she go?

She's been missing for over a decade

The truth can be very harsh

You sure wanna find out?

Yes. I want to look for her

No problem

Half a million dolllars

The plastic bag

Here you are

Where's the toilet?

Shit, this place is huge

- What are you doing?
- I wanna pee...

- I'm taking a bath!
- Where's the toilet?

Toilet! Where is it?

I'm taking a bath!

There's a toilet in your room

Tell me where it is

Over there

- Which direction?
- Your 9 o'clock


I'm blind. I can't see a thing

I'm not blind, though

Don't look

Why am I here?

You were drunk last night

I brought you here

Thank you

Are you totally blind?

Yes. Pitch black

You can't see a thing?

3,000 square feet?


On what street?

Durham Road

Kowloon Tong... low density housing

Costs more than $20K per sq. ft.

Worth $70M?

Are you on the take?

What'd you mean?

I inherited the money from my parents

I'm now the only member in the family

It'll be my dowry

You'll help find Minnie for me, won't you?

Yes, but it'll be costly


I thought you said half a mil

Are you kidding? No way

I'm God of detectives

- Any problem?
- No

Apply for your leave

Why would I do that?

You can learn from me

I'll teach you a few masterstrokes

Free of charge

- Thank you, thank you
- My pleasure

Listen to this case

Homicide case


Wednesday night

Kowloon public morgue


You'll be Uncle Kao. I'll be Tak

- Yell at me
- How?

Brainless! Moron!

Use your imagination

Brainless! Moron!

Brainless! Moron!


Do you think with your ass?


Do you think with your ass? Pig!

Again, More fierce



Uncle Kao is from Chiuchow. Use the dialect



You know nothing

You aren't human

As stupid as a pig

You know nothing


Moron! Have you left your brain at home?

I've told you. Imbecile!

Let me tell you

You're worse than a pig

As stupid as a pig

Your brain is full of shit

Asshole, have you finished?


It doesn't break


Let's swap roles

I'll play Tak, and you, Uncle Kao

Asshole, have you finished?

How is that?

Doesn't look right

Forget it

Let's start again

Asshole, have you finished?

Did you bring your brain to work?

Wait! Wait a sec

You hit too hard. Let's swap

But you can't see

It's ok. I'll manage

Crawl! Quick!


Tak is coming from behind, like mad

He hit him nine times

One, two...


Uncle Kao was seriously injured

He couldn't have crawled so fast

Back to the original position.
Act slowly this time

You're injured badly

You're doomed

Keep crawling

You're a piece of dead meat now

Stop! Stop!


You're emotionally inconsistent. You were very mad

Why did you behave like this?

It's not right for you to strike him

and then waited

before you hit him nine more times outside

What happened in between?

The takeaway?

Who ordered takeaway?


What's more urgent than killing a person?

To kill another person

There's a third person

A third person entered into the scene

after Tak had hit Uncle Kao once

Tak had to leave Uncle Kao behind

and chased after that third person

I need a third person

Here. Let me play him


The police didn't find any bloodstain
at the scene of the crime

Tak didn't kill with a hammer

The victim was strangled to death

The timing fits

Get one of them to play Uncle Kao

- Me
- Me

You! You raised your hand faster

When I start strangling, crawl

Can I struggle?

Of course. This is normal

It hurts!


You can't strangle me like this

Let's swap

You're blind




You're blind

I know. One, two, three

Sorry. I played it for real

After him



The time matches


Who's the one being strangled?

The police didn't find his body

That means you've fixed it

Why did you fix him

but not him?

Where have you been in the last two decades?

Higher. Ready? Drop it

Right. That's the way it was smashed

But why smash the TV set?

What triggered such behaviour?

What program was aired on
Wednesday nights 20 years ago?

Enjoy Yourself Tonight

The other channel?

It's horse-racing on live

Now I know

Let's go and eat

We won't need these. Thank you

- Here's $2 change
- Thanks

Two noodles

Long time no see. I thought you were dead

This is super-delicious

I used to come here with Szeto

Did you see that?

The Dance School on the second floor behind you

See that?

Yup. Tango Blue, right?

Go check if she's in

What's the case about?

A big case. Go


- Don't fuck it up
- Yes

She coming down


The lady, what shall we do?

Don't look. Pretend eating


Seems like you're the nervous one. Who's she?

A wanted criminal?

She 's got on a car. Shall we follow her?


No need. Mission accomplished

Two more to take away, please


Take off your shoes

I've just washed the floor

What's up?

Why so excited?

She's back


This is nice, who are you talking about?

What're you eating?


What am I doing?


Your future wife?

Right. My future wife

Don't you remember?

You helped me find her at that time

But she went away

I've never thought
I'd run into her four years later

I'm destined to marry her

Have you ever thought

your future wife might have married

You have a foul mouth

She's most probably someone's wife

Touch wood!

It's been a long time and she's 30 already

Touch wood!

It's perfectly normal to get married

Touch wood!

A beautiful woman like her
must have lots of suitors

Touch wood!



Touch wood!

It's all mold and rot

One can't live here anymore

I'm not used to work out of home.

But this is a complicated case.

I'd like to move in and feel things.

No additional charge.

Sure. Many thanks.

My pleasure

Where's my room?

What do you think? Is that OK?

It'll do

I'd like my wardrobe

be set up just like the way at home

Suits on the left, shirts on the right

Casual wear and pajamas in the bottom

Let's watch TV together, goldie


I'm contemplating

Excuse me

You were looking at Minnie from here?

She was standing across the street

Go down and shout to me. I'd like to feel it


Johnston, over here



Did Minnie behave strangely

while she was waiting for you?

She came here right after school

It was the same for several nights

But I did remember

she was raising her hand at me

I didn't know what that meant

She slit her wrist

She wanted me to know she was very unhappy

Why didn't I realise that?

And yet you knew right away

I'm blind, but I can read people's mind

Why are you blind?

I was on a case

four years ago

I was waiting for the suspect to show his face

I started to see dark patches

on the seventh day

But I didn't pay any attention to that

The next day, the suspect showed up

I chased frentically after him until I caught him

But I became blind after that

Retinal detachment

the doctor said it's too late

Which one is Minnie?

Check whose feet will fit the sneaker

Minnie's feet have grown so much?

I gave her a pair of red shoes

This is the police. Line up

Take off your shoes, one by one

Left foot, please

What's up?

Coach, it's the police

We're on a case. Step aside

What's wrong? What happened?

The coach has run away

Chase after her

After her

Bingo. I can't believe it

Take a break. More policemen are coming

I told you, Szeto

That big-foot who cleaned out five jewellery shops

in a row three years ago was a woman

Come quickly

Minnie, Minnie

Are you OK, miss?

Minnie, Minnie

I lost her. I only picked up a shoe

Why do you give it to me?

I thought you're a sprinter?

She was much taller than me

She doubled my strides. I even broke my heels

Why didn't you shoot her?

You also mentioned your marksmanship

I can't shoot at Minnie

She's not Minnie?

Who said she is?

Just guessing

I'm Chief Inspector Szeto Fabo

Where's the suspect?


Go check him out. Get a police dog

Send someone

We're talking about $1M bounty


You're actually investigating into your own case

You're not looking for Minnie

Well, I'm doing both

You cheated me to help you get your bounty

What do you mean by cheat?

Who do you think I am?

Who do you think Johnston is?

Me cheating you?

Come on, her feet are all swollen

How do I cheat you?

What do you mean?

I'm teaching you to be a cop, to help you improve

What's that?

They're like roasted pig knuckles

My parents didn't want me to be a cop

But I didn't care

Because I really wanted to find Minnie

I felt I was my responsible

for her disappearance

I've applied for ten days' leave.
I still have a week's time

You're a madcap, aren't you?

I was raised in a broken family

Is Minnie's mother still in jail?

She killed herself in prison

How about her grandma?

She was released a few years ago

I asked her about Minnie. She's clueless

Bring me to her

Watch out!

Granny! Granny!

I'm Ho

Are you there?

- Excuse me...
- I don't know

I don't know her

Never saw her

Don't ask me

Call Granny

Granny's here

The perfume's intoxicating


Come out. Out!

Come out, you nymph

You can't desert me like that

I helped you change the light bulb out of kindness

But it turned out I have to run for my life

I don't like you at all

But I do. I've fallen in love with you

For God's sake

Leave him alone

Leave my father alone

Leave my father-in-law alone

Shut up!

Pang, my love for you is genuine

But you've treated me like trash

You've dumped me. I'll make your life miserable

You're out of your mind


- Let's go!
- Don't look!

Close the door

I won't let go of you

Granny went down by the back stairs

After her

Help to put everything onto the truck

Forget everything. Leave them behind

Let's get into the truck

Let's go!

Where's she?

This way

Pang, wait for me



Granny is getting a taxi

Follow her


Let's go. Quick

Quick, after the truck

Go after it


I can't live without him

Granny, this is Johnston. He's looking for Minnie

We've some questions for you

I know nothing

Leave me alone


Drive faster

Granny, Minnie is your granddaughter

She has nothing to do with me, dead or alive

Leave me alone, or I'll fix you



This woman is intoxicated with love

Leave her alone

It'll expire very soon


The reward money

Even if I crack the case, I won't get paid

Granny has got onto the truck

She's shut herself in the closet

What shall we do?

We'll go to Macau


Is 8 points a sure win?

There's no sure win in gambling

Give me a three-lines

Three-lines (6, 7 or 8)

Come on...

Come on...

Are you making a fool of me, Szeto?

I've checked all the casinos

You sure he's in Macau?

Cut the crap. It's all your fault

The reward money for
the morgue murder will soon expire

Extend it for me

I don't care how you'd do that

You came here on the pretext of Minnie's case

But in fact you're after your own case

You never wanted to help me

Minnie is human

Hers is a human life

How about the other victims?

How about Uncle Kao? Are they humans?

Are theirs human lives?

What kind of a cop are you?

After I went blind, I kept thinking

Why on earth did God make me blind?

Then I understood

I became blind

to look into old files which no one cares

to go after those murderers
who have evaded capture

and to return justice to the victims

Sorry about that

It's fine, as long as you understand.
Let's find him

I've got him

Where? Why didn't you tell me?

He's playing baccarat

The one who sneezed

He's leaving

Follow him


Wasn't Tak the murderer in the morgue case?

What has it to do with this fat guy?

Don't tell me he is Tak

He's gained that much weight?

Wanna be the Goddess of detectives?


To crack a case, one must have an imaginative mind

You must learn to employ

Brodmann Areas 37, 39, 40 of the cerebral cortex

What areas? Where are they?

Here, here and here

Here, here and here?

Close your eyes


Where are you?

In a restaurant

Want me to beat you up?

Imagine yourself

being in the office of the morgue

The time was Wednesday, April 17, 1992

There's a live broadcast of
the last horse race on TV

The commentator was very exhilarating

Heading in the final round

is Warlord, followed closely by More Treasures

Uncle Kao and Tak betted on a Six-up jackpot

They had won five races in a row

This was the decisive one

But there was a third person at the scene


Imagine it was yourself

No. 8, hang on

You used to chip in on their bets

But not this time

Damn! Everytime I chipped in, you'd lose

When I didn't, you'd win

Well, this proves that you have bad luck

Why complained?

We had asked you to chip in. Jerk

The Six-up jackpot is a record-breaking...


What a fortune. Hurrah

Over $2M for each

Uncle Kao, we can quit our job

You simply couldn't reconcile yourself to this

Fury has overwhelmed your rationale

I see. Tak was the victim, not the killer

He's Lee, a day-shift colleague of
Tak and Uncle Kao

After Uncle Kao's death and
the disappearance of Tak

Lee collected the $5M jackpot

from Jockey Club

and started his own business

But he soon lost all of the money

Once a murderer, he wouldn't mind
committing more crimes

In recent years, many gamblers
in Macau were hit on the head

and robbed. It must be him

Shall we arrest him?

Of course. But how?

- Do you have a credit card?
- Yes

- Do you have a credit line of $300K?
- Yes

Bet against him

I'll pretend to join

Ensnare him. Make him mad

Make him so hate you that he wants to kill you

All on my own?

Of course. Just be confident

Thank you. I've won again

I'd like a bite

A little bit of each


Johnston? I don't think he's following me

Impossible! I'm sure he will

Don't look back, though

Better find a more remote place

More remote

More remote?

Believe me

You were just loathsome

And you made him lose all his money.
Plus being a woman

He'll surely beat the hell out of you

Just call me after it's over

Curry Restaurant, Taipa Village

Let me try the egg rolls

You found him?

What'd you think?

Positive. You're blind

It's easier to follow you

I told you he didn't come after me

Very smart. Now what?

You're in great danger

He'll attack you

What shall I do?

Where are you?

I'll come to your rescue

That's nice

Hurry, then

Thank you

Arrived? How much?

MOP $68

Help! Murder!

Help! Where the hell are you, Ho?

Come down, blind man. You haven't paid yet

I'm just a cab driver

You think I'm a jerk? You're holding a hammer

All these recent murders in
Macau were committed by you

Help arrest this murderer, Ho!

Who's Ho?

Who are you?

I'm here to arrest you, Lee

You killed Tak and Uncle Kao

You thought no one would find out

The cold-blooded killer's here, Ho!

Who's Ho?

What else do you know?

You dismembered Tak,
mix the body parts with other corpses

to create the fact that he was on the run.

He's absolutely ruthless, Ho!

Who's Ho?

There's no way you'd have known.
I was the only one there

What's that in your hand?

There's no way you'd have known.
I was the only one there

You son of a bitch! You'll die!

He wants to silence me, Ho!

Stop! Go back a bit

He wants to silence me, Ho!


Call the police

I'm dialing

He wants to silence me, Ho!

Where are you? I'm dying

Ho, help me!

I am dying, Ho!


Hit him


What happened?

He passed out

Thank you

You're in a very good mood


Because I'm one step closer to my dream

What dream?

To see again

There are reseraches on using
stem cells for retinal implant

and tests on electronic eyes

Although chances are still remote

there's no harm in start saving money now

Johnston, how do I look

in your imagination?

Maybe similar to Officer Susan

Officer Susan?

Who's she?

She works in West Kowloon District

You have improved much

Thanks to your patience

Are you free this Saturday?

Well, yes or no?


Let's go

You've grown taller

A little bit

How much is a little bit?

Watch out

Where are we going, Johnston?

Tango Blue

The dance studio opposite to
the food vendor last time

Got that

Bring me to her

and you may leave

Me, leave? Who is she?

You may leave upon bringing me there

You wanna catch the perp by yourself?

No, you mustn't...

What perp?

She's my dream lady

I had fallen for her before I became blind

I dreamt of seeing her again

What do you think of her? Pretty, right?

Isn't she's gorgeous?

A good match for me, right?

The picture is upside down

What a perfect match

Only a great beauty like her

deserves a handsome man like me

We're born for each other

Did I do my tie well?

Well? Did you see her?

She's dancing. At your 12 o'clock

Go over

I'll wait for you here?

No need

- I can pick you up when you're over
- No need

Shall I wait for you?

Will you be back for the night?

Shall I lock up?

Go away

Where do I go?

How are you? I'm Johnston

Hi, I'm Ding Ding

May I dance with you?

Easy. I won't step on you



Is that OK?

Yes, you're great

I'm been waiting

for this moment for four years

My friend and I used to eat intestines downstairs

I fell in love with you

the first time I set my eyes on you

I fell in love with you right away

Isn't the girl dancing up there exquisite?

Not bad looking. Small boops, though

She's gonna be my future wife

I'm sorry

I was thinking to introduce myself
after I finished my case

Never thought that I'd go blind

Sorry to hear that

No problem

I asked my friend to look for you afterwards

But he failed

I'm so lucky to see you again

Excuse me

No problem

I understand I'm being rude

But please grant me the opportunity to
start a relationship

Am I too late?

Yes. I'm married

Sorry for disturbing

Johnston, brace yourself

keep calm and listen

What's the bad news?

The reward money is gone

You didn't extend it for me?

Or have you forgotten?

It's not my fault. The Treasury declined it

I'm not the boss

I'm just Chief Inspector Szeto Fabo

You think I can play magic?



Have some intestines

Sorry, my boss is looking for me

I'll go first


You got married?

You and her? You married her?

I tried tell you in your home last time

I asked you to be a go-between

and you married her

You called that loyalty?

I'm sorry. Let me explain...

Come closer and I'll beat you

Wrong direction, 3 o'clock

Spare your sympathy

Excuse me, buddy

Is Officer Susan here?

I'm Susan

but I'm no buddy

What's the matter, Johnston?

I figured it out

When I was walking on the street, heartbroken

I suddenly recalled a case about
a missing woman in 1996

She was dumped by her boyfriend

and disappeared on the same night

What has that to do with Minnie?

Wasn't Minnie kind of heartbroken
before she disappeared?


There lies the similarity

Heartbroken and disappeared...
heartbroken and disappeared

You mean there might be a psychotic serial killer

who targeted at heartbroken women?

I'm almost certain

Szeto Fabo

This is not a truce

I won't listen to any of your explanation

You wanna go on? I'll hang up

Listen! Find...

all missing females' files in the last decade

Check out those who had been jilted
before they disappeared

Bring these files to me


What's going on?

Let's go

I heard you were heartbroken?

Walking on the street alone

That son-of-a-bitch betrayed me

He stole the love of my life

and married her

Forget it, maybe you'll find a better lady

It's no easy job

A top woman is rare to come by

You can't see her anyway

even if she looks like Susan

She'll make me lose face in front of my friends

Johnston, I'm here

You ordered so many dishes

Thank you

And shark's fin soup, too


Try some

- Just rice will do
- OK

Here are the files you wanted

They are hard to come by

I've spent several nights in compiling them

These are classified

It took a lot of strings to get them

Give them to me

They're heavy

I know it's all my fault

You've every right to be mad

But please listen to my explanation

I don't love you. Go to hell

How does that feel?


Come up


Are you making a movie? So many pads

I'll get hurt

That's the point

I want you to feel their pain

Do away with these

- Can you do it?
- OK

- You sure?
- I'm fine

Hold on

Dickhead, did you dump me for her?

Needless to say

I'm prettier than you, my boops are bigger


Go on!

You're not jumping? Let's go get a room.

Watch out! Easy!

Can you get into character?

I'll play it right

What's wrong?

I can't get into character if I restrain myself

Let's play it for real. Just once?



Why did two people so much in love

would end up like this?

Breaking up is always ugly and nasty

The opposite of love is hate

But Susan and the likes of you

won't understand this

because you have never been in love



I'm full

That's right

Maintain this kind of emptiness

Let me finish it


You sure I have to do the tatoo?

Does it have to be "Forever Valentino"?

The statement said the missing girl
had such a tatoo

It's awful. I don't know any Valentino

And I don't love Valentino

Even the tatooist reminded me to think twice

I'll be stuck with it

Then forget it

We'll stop investigating

Vinci Lai

Where did you go after you did the tatoo?

May Wong, where did you go?

Kay Yeung, where did you go?

Karen Man, where did you go?

And Sylvia Choi, where were you?


did all of you go?

The murderer is a cab driver

Where're you going?

Find the taxi driver

Find the taxi driver

How do you do that?

Tell me once more the date of missing

Hannah Leung, missing in February, 1995

Speak clearly

In these few days

I was dumped and heartbroken by you for 10 times

I'm trying my best

Hannah Leung, February 7, 1995

May Wong, October 11, 1996

Karen Man, May 22, 1997

Lilian Lee, December 28, 1998

Haley Cheung, September 9, 1999

Fanny Chan, February 14, 2002

Kay Yeung, March 19, 2003

Hilda Ko, August 25, 2004

Vinci Lai, November 30, 2005

Sylvia Choi, January 12, 2006.

And Minnie, June 20, 1997

The muderer didn't commit
any crime in 2000 and 2001

And no more such cases after 2006

What happened to the murderer?

Did I have enough money for the taxi?

You're heartbroken,
this didn't come across your mind

Why was I heartbroken?

These other girls broke up with their boyfriends

I'm unlike them

You're intimate friends

You're heartbroken because she avoided you

You waited for her until midnight and took a taxi

You must have fallen for her secretly

You're a lesbian

Not uncommon for an adolescent girl like you

You must be

Hello, Szeto Fabo?

This is not a truce

Listen. Go find out a taxi driver

who quit driving in 2000 and 2001

Bastard! He dares not come

I volunteered to come myself. May I sit down?

Szeto is very unhappy

I don't want him to be like that

Things were not quite like you thought

There were things even Szeto didn't know

The truth is, when I first saw both of you

Szeto was the one who attracted me, deeply

I fell for him immediately

1, 2, 3, 4...

I planned to go after him after the dance contest

But both of you didn't show up

until that day

Sir, who are you looking for?

You're not allowed into the ladies' changing room

The man is quite well built

wears a leather jacket, smokes a cigar

and behaves arrogantly. Dunno what he's after?

Are you alright?

It's not my fault

She suddenly dashed out

Call the ambulance

Don't be afraid

I'm Senior Inspector

Szeto Fabo

Don't be afraid

It turned out the man I admired was...

a Dirty Harry type cop

At that moment

I decided to be with that man

for the rest of my life

He's my one life, one love

That's enough

I get the picture

But may I ask one question

You said when you first set eyes on us

the one who attracted you

was him. But why?

He's cool

Tell me, who's more cute?

She must be blind

She told you she's infatuated with Szeto

It's you who thought otherwise

Just your wishful thinking

Stand still, eye on the window

Imagine yourself to be Minnie

Slit your wrist

That's a real knife

Nothing to lose with a look like Susan

There'll be scars

Scars are bad for pretty girls, not Susan


How was that?

How did that feel?

A bit overact, I must say

Not heartbroken enough

A bit forced

Got that

Once more

Just imagine

Minnie took after her grandma

totally infected by the notion of love, OK?sss


You're Minnie. At school...

you had no friends, but it's alright

because you only cared for a boy

You secretly loved him

Finally you got to know him, and started

dating each other. You're in love

But soon he grew tired of you

He decided to break up with you

He dumped you, you were deeply hurt

It hurt so much you started mutilate yourself


Stop, Ho!

Stop, Stop!

Minnie wasn't waiting for you

Was someone living upstairs?

It's been vacated for a long time

I mean the time when Minnie came


Was it a boy of similar age as Minnie?


Studying in the same school? Cute?

Where is he?


Grilled Jumbo Prawn. Please enjoy

Thank you

This way

- Thank you
- You're welcome

Something to drink?

- Iced sake, please
- Sure

Thank you

Did you live in Hong Kong?

Durham Street in Kowloon Tong?


Are you Joe?

You are...

Ho, I lived downstairs.

Please enjoy, sir


You looked completely different

Much fairer skin now

Almost not recognisable

What are you up to?

Still picking fights?

No, I tripped

Are you still going after cats with air guns?

Of course not. That's kid stuff

Please pick your choice

The Beef Set, please

Thank you

Did you emigrate to Brazil?

In 1997?

I returned three years ago

Started this restaurant with a friend

- OK
- Zhuhai is better for business

At the time you left

Minnie also disappeared

Did you know Minnie?

Minnie Lee?

She studied in our school,
in fact the same class with you

Don't recall anything

Not at all?

She used to hang out at my place

No, didn't ring a bell

Fried rice, Sir. Please enjoy

Excuse me, one more Grilled Jumbo Prawn

Of course

Johnston, want any night snack?

Joe knew Minnie

How do you know?

He was making the fried rice
when you mentioned Minnie

I tasted it, it was too salty

So I ordered two more dishes

Grilled Jumbo Prawn. Please enjoy

The prawn was too dry

Scallop, please

Right on

The scallop finally tasted right

Which means he was disturbed by Minnie's name

There must be something fishy

Don't think I was enjoying the food

What shall we do?

Keep an eye on him

He's coming out, holding a rat cage

He's drowning the mouse

He's the one who killed Minnie

He dismembered her and
threw the body into a trash bin

We've been sitting here for hours
reading magazines

Who is he waiting for?

He's waiting for someone to leave

He's also watching somebody

Joe's partner is coming down from
the opposite building

He's settled the bill

Let's do that too

Check, please

- Check, please
- Right away

Quick, give me the bill

Excuse me, coming

Joe went to his partner's building. What now?

Let's go and see

What about the check?

Leave the money on the table

He's after the manageress of the restaurant

Wow, they're kissing!

What do you like to drink?

Green tea


He's fucking your wife

Come back quickly

Is that the girl who wanted the bill?

Yes, she's pregnant

Is Joe's partner coming back?

He's running back

The pregnant woman is Joe's wife

Stupid! He's hiding in the balcony

Stop fighting

The pregnant woman ran away

Stop fighting. Come down

Joe has fallen down too


My dear, are you alright?

I am scared

I'm fine

The pregnant woman has gone crazy

Go help quickly


Missus, you'll kill him

"voc me trair,
eu vou perseguir voc atm morrermos"

Why did you lie?

You knew Minnie and had dated her

You lied because you killed her

Is that right? You killed Minnie

No, I didn't

Are you crazy?


You molested her, a minor

I was a minor too

We're both willing

What are you looking at? I didn't kill her

I really didn't kill her

We dated each other for a month

I dumped her after I had my fun

I was getting ready to emigrate

She kept badgering me

She waited outside my house every night

And mutilated herself with a knife

She's crazy

The night I went to Brazil

she kept chasing after the bus

There are five cab driver suspects

Choi was jailed for injuring a passenger in 2000

He now lives in Wong Tai Sin...
Then there's Law...

he was in drug rehab in 2000

he now lives in Tsing Yi


went to work in the mainland in 2000

lives in Shek Pai Wan...
Then there's Chan Kwong

stayed in a metal hospital in 2000

now lives in Yuen Long

The last one is Ng

his licence was suspended
for reckless driving in 2000

lives in Kwun Tong

So? Who should we pick first?

The one in Yuen Long

Chan Kwong? Why?

Yuen Long has lots of good food

Don't eat them all

Leave some for me

You're driving. Concentrate

Try some


Who's that?

Chan Kwong? Police!

Open the door

Chan Kwong

What's wrong?

He's naked

He's only wearing a tennis skirt

and a pair of female sneakers

Watch out

Careful! There're many women's cloths

bras, panties, high heel shoes, handbags

Where did you get all these female clothings?

The pretty chics left them behind

Do you remember picking up a young girl

wearing a tennis outfit on October 11, 1996?

1996? Tennis outfit?

Like the one you're wearing


What happened?

She got into my car

She was in tears and looked very sad

But she's very pretty and attractive

And then?

What did you do to her?

Did you drive her here and raped her?

And killed her when she resisted

No, I only ate her eyes

Where is she?

Where did you hide her?


There's a skeleton in the trunk of the cab

Is that hers?

No, not this one

I'll go up

There's another one down there

No, not this one either

What did you see?

Many wine jars

Not this one

What nuisance!

I gave up. Go find it yourself

They're all here

Call for backup

What's up?

Dinner's time

You've killed many people

Did you pick up Minnie?

On June 20, 1997...

did you pick up a young girl in school uniform

and a pair of red shoes in Kowloon Tong?

The dishes have turned cold

I'm very hungry

Where's Minnie?

You have very beautiful eyes

May Wong, help me

You're indeed my idol

You marksmanship is excellent
despite your blindness

Thank you

How are you?

Cut the crap

Is it serious?

My waist... I feel dizzy...

I can't drive

No signals

I'll drive

To you left

Your right

Hang on!

Don't fall asleep. Stay awake

I've never thought I'd die in this way

Do you have something to tell me?

Don't you like me?

You knew? How embarrassing. I'd better die fast

Rubbish. There's nothing to be embarrassed of

I suddenly learn...

I... I suddenly learn...

that I love you too

But I look like Susan

I'm blind anyway

You'll lose face in front of your friends

I don't have any friend, I've only got one

that Sezto bastard

You love me

just because I am rich

I love your wealth alright

But I also love everything else about you

Even if you're penniless


I didn't tattoo "Forever Valentino" on my shoulder

I tattooed "I Love Johnston"

How gross. It'll be there for
the rest of your life

That's nice

Don't sleep!

It's for life!

Do you know how to drive?

Are you blind?

Can't you see all these cars?

Help! Call the police

Is the operation over?

We didn't find the young girl you mentioned

Minnie wasn't there?

We found ten skeleton bones
at the scene of the crime

All victims were proved to be female adults.

That is to say, Minnie's not among them


Did you search thoroughly?

We searched every corner

Why are you so sure?

I told you I didn't have any cash for the taxi

Where did I go wrong?

It's not Chan Kwong

How about Joe? Did he kill me?

How is she?

Doctor said the operation went well

Thank you, nurse

What's wrong?

I'm fucked up

I was so desperate that I told her...

I loved her

She doesn't love you?

Shut up!

She loves every inch of me

from the very beginning


Too bad she looks like Suzan

Which Suzan?

Officer Suzan in West Kowloon District

The woman who looks like a man

You're blind, buddy!

What's the fuzz?

That's what I thought

But you know, medical advancement

may one day cure my blindness

How can I look at her?

Come here

Touch her

You're crazy! No!

I don't want to find out

Trust me, bro

I know where I went wrong


I was wrong about you

You didn't take a taxi. You went on a ship

You've finally worked it out



Have you woken?

Does it still hurt?

A little bit. Where are you?

Sorry, I was on the wrong track

Chan Kwong didn't kill Minnie

But I have new clues

I'm going to find Joe and ask him something

You going alone?

Don't worry

Rest well

I'll have good news for you

I love you

What did you say?

I'm going to find Joe

Not that

I mean your last sentence

I love you

Bye bye

Bye bye

Ladies gentlemen

Welcome on board Cotai Water Jet

We'll arrive Zhuhai in 75 minutes' time

I've found out that you lied

The truth is...

Minnie kept badgering you. You killed...

and dismembered her. Right?

"Rat Poison"

Your call cannot be connected

Mr. Johnston

Try some black pepper

It'll taste more delicious

Go ahead...

Oh my goodness!

It hurts

It hurts

But it really tastes good

I'll die for it

Get out of my way!

Anybody there?

Excuse me

Anybody there?

Is Joe there?

How are you? My name's Johnston

I'm looking for Joe. Is he in?

He's not here. I had a row with him

He ran away with that woman

I want to confirm something

You can probably help me

I'm in a bad mood

Please leave

In that case...

May I have a glass of water?

Sake is better. Thank you

Thank you

I studied a case by imagining myself to
be its characters

and made guesses

Listen to this story

and see if I guessed right

Minnie was afraid she'd never see the boy again

She didn't even know where to look for him

But she did not give up

She told herself she must stay calm

stay calm

She never thought

she'd hide in the closet for 27 days

and end up in Brazil

But she knew if she showed up to the boy

she'd only

scare him off

So she left

She got adopted by the locals, changed her name

But she always stayed near the boy

She later changed her look by plastic surgery

and succeeded in winning him back

But all men are unfaithful

He had many affairs with other women

No matter how hard Minnie tried

the marriage still fell apart

"voc me trair,
eu vou perseguir voc atm morrermos"

This is a Portugese saying

I've checked

This is what it means in Chinese

"You betrayed me. I'll make you suffer like hell."

These words were from your grandma

But one mustn't be blinded by one's stubborness

It can drive one to kill

Your mother was an example of that

Same with your grandma

You resemble your grandma too much

I came not only for the truth

but to ask you to let go

I guess I'm wrong again

I'd better go home and do more study

I'll go now. Thank you

No need to see me off

Thank you for the sake

Thank you

Help me!

She's lying

Ignore her

Help me!

My waters have broken. Help!

Easy... take a deep breath

A deep breath

Come on!



Murder! Ho?



Help! Help!

Help me, Ho!




The baby...

Save the baby

She's Minnie



Hang in there, Minnie!

Hang in!


Get up!

Get up!


Minnie, push harder

Say 1, 2, 3. Push!

Deep breath. Do it again

1, 2, 3, push!



It's coming

The baby's coming

It's coming



Is it a boy or girl?

Johnston! A girl

A little Minnie

I don't want strawberry

I want mango

Mango's sold out. Don't be stubborn

I want mango! Mango!

Be a good girl, Little Minnie

Mommy will buy you mango ice cream later

Is that OK?

I'm teaching my daughter

Big Foot!

Honey be careful

Uncle Szeto

I've found Big Foot

Moody Road in Tsimshatsui East

Say "Thank you"

Moody Road. Come quickly. Thanks

If you don't eat it, Daddy will

You mustn't eat other people's ice cream

Then eat it

No! I don't like strawberry!

I want mango! Mango
